I told a couple of NJ Expos players before the games started, "You are getting your 1st win today, book it," Mind you, I am unclear of what kind of odds they were getting on fanduel, but the confidence was present!
Game looked promising for the Expos as they led 10-3 after 2 innings. The Underdogz weren't about to be upset in Game 1. The exploded for a 9 run 3rd inning. Chris Jr, Omar & Joe each drove in 2 runs in the 3rd. Underdogs Pitcher, Dave had a stud muffin like last 3 innings as he shut the Expos completely out. The 6th & 7th innings were 1,2,3 each! Nice outing for the hurler! The Underdogz had a total of 27 base hits & every team member scored at least 1 run!
Game 1 Final:
Underdogz - 22
NJ Expos - 14
And then... It happened! It wasn't pretty, it wasn't flawless, but the NJ Expos won a game! It looked grim at first with Underdogz taking a 9-2 lead through 3. I would argue Joe & JB were the Underdogz MVPs, as they combined for 5 for 8, 6 RBIs, 3 runs scored & a Homer! Scary moment for Frank Guzman, the pitcher for NJ Expos as Omar smashed a line drive right to the mound, which was almost caught by Frank. He was shaken up, but finished the game! In Field play of the day come at the hands of Second Basemen Mike who made an incredible stop on a fast grounder his way & completed a 4-6-3 Double Play! Clean up batter Ryan had a 2 Run Homer, while Luke & Rey added a triple each for the Expos! The Expos enjoyed their 1st win as Matt K. was quoted saying, "Hey Rob, you should maybe come to all of our games". Not a bad idea!
Final Game 2:
NJ Expos - 14
Underdogz - 13
